The Redskins made three coaching hires official today - including a new name that hadn't been previously batted around.
Kyle Shanahan's hiring as the Redskins' new offensive coordinator was hardly a secret - especially considering Mike Shanahan spilled the beans at his own introductory news conference two weeks ago - and we told you last week about Matt LaFleur, who was an offensive assistant under Kyle Shanahan in Houston and will serve as the Redskins' quarterbacks coach.
But a name that came from seemingly nowhere was Jon Embree's. He's the Redskins' new tight ends coach. Embree was apparently out of coaching last season and served as the Kansas City Chiefs' tight ends coach from 2006-08, which followed three seasons as an offensive assistant at UCLA.
